The Life of Pets With Allergies

Since sharing Tootsie's allergy diagnosis, I have learned of many other dogs and cats in the pet community who suffer with some form of allergies.

It can be overwhelming and saddening to find out that your precious fur baby has an allergy.

I wanted to share with you the stories of other pets who suffer, who have overcome their allergies, as well as some great resource articles. My hope is that you find a useful tip, or solution, for comforting your pet with their allergy symptoms.  If anything, know that you and your fur baby are not alone.

My Dog Has Allergies, What To Do Part Two

Tootsie the Chi: My Dog Has Allergies


So naturally, my first question to the veterinarian, when I found out Tootsie had allergies, was what can I do to help her.

The vet explained to me that my dog's allergies were more than likely caused by her food, since she is mostly an indoor dog.  It was highly recommended that I change her food.

So of course, I had lots of questions about what type of food to feed her and what to avoid.  The veterinarian recommended I find a high quality food from a reputable pet food store.  She suggested a shop in our area and for Tootsie to go with me for a consultation.

More Than A Dozen Pet Names Inspired By Food

Growing up, we always had a few fur babies in our home, as well as feathered and finned ones!

Over the years, we came up with some interesting names for our pets, to say the least.

 My Dad had a rule, none of our pets could be named after a human.  Their name had to be a fictional character, an adjective, an object or a place.

When I became an adult, I carried on this tradition of pet naming criteria, my favorite are those inspired by nature.   It seems this tradition has  rubbed off on my children as well!  My one child is drawn to naming pets after their favorite snacks or food.

So in honor of my wonderful childhood memories and my amazing children, I'm sharing a few pet names!  You guessed it, of course they are food related!
